Area college: OU knocks off UT; Cowgirls hit wall; Arkansas men hang on

NORMAN —  Morgan Hook nearly amassed a triple-double, leading Oklahoma to a much needed win over Texas in the Sooners’ Pack the Place Pink game Wednesday night.

Hook totaled 15 points, nine rebounds and eight assists — all team highs — but her final three points were the most important as Oklahoma (16-11, 7-7 Big 12) defeated Texas (17-9, 8-6) 64-63.

Oklahoma and Texas tied five times in the final six minutes before Hook pulled the Sooners even a final time on a layup with 17.4 seconds to play.  

Chassidy Fussell missed a layup on Texas’ next offensive possession and then Hook drove the length of the court and drew contact with 6-foot-7 center Imani McGee-Stafford to reach the free throw line with 4.0 seconds on the clock.

Fussell scored 16 points for Texas. Nneka Enemkpali led the Longhorns with 17 points.

Oklahoma led 27-26 at halftime.

W. Va. 77, OSU 45

MORGANTOWN, W.Va.  — Bria Holmes scored 20 points and Christal Caldwell added 15 as twelfth-ranked West Virginia throttled No. 13 Oklahoma State 77-45, holding the Cowgirls to 25 percent shooting on Wednesday night.

The Mountaineers (23-3, 12-2 Big 12) raced out 14-0 and were never threatened, leading by 18 at halftime and adding an 8-0 run to start the second half on a Caldwell jumper.

Oklahoma State (20-5, 9-5) was led by Tiffany Bias, who scored 10 points on 4-for-13 shooting. As a team, the Cowgirls connected on just 16 of 62 shots and were an even colder 1 of 18 on 3-pointers for a season-low 45 points.

The Mountaineers, who handed Oklahoma State its first loss of the season 71-67 in Stillwater on Jan. 4, harried the Cowgirls into 17 turnovers.

Asya Bussie added 12 points and 10 rebounds for the Mountaineers with Taylor Palmer adding 10 points and four assists.

Men:

Arkansas 71,

S. Carolina 64


FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.  — Michael Qualls scored 20 points as Arkansas held off a second-half rally by South Carolina for a 71-64 win on Wednesday night.

The sophomore, who struggled mightily with his shooting to start conference play, finished 7 of 14 from the field — including 4 of 7 on 3-pointers — for the Razorbacks (17-9, 6-7 Southeastern Conference).

Coty Clarke added 12 points and 12 rebounds for Arkansas, which has won two straight games and four of five overall.
